Corinthians 13:12 Modified

For now we see through a Becks beer glass or two, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Whatever that means a very nice evening was spent in Bremen.

That's the name of the pub there on the plate of non-low cholesterol non-vegetarian - North German style health food.

Incidentally a superb striving at low quality strictly functional pay as you book, check-in and pass wind Irish airline flies  directly from Manchester to Bremen.

The romance of flying - and then there is O'Leary Airways ("OA")
This is my headrest - the only onboard amenity thrown in - thoughtfully provided and easy to wipe clean.
Back to the theme of this round up of Nikos World February or was it March excursions.

Somewhere in Bremen discovered after leaving the pub.

Another week and another Ryanair bargain fright to Germany - this time to Hahn airport that is indeed very close to the throbbing major economic centre of Hahn. It's more locally known as Frankfurt Luton airport by any other name and  the terminal appears to be being built.

This dramatic view is from the bus stop at Hahn Luton airport - there is one bus a week to faraway Mainz and the incoming bus driver got lost.
Romantic Germany is what it says
I have to take Ronny out of winter storage  - this involves a journey through the house....
Ah, made it......
Clouds over the Benelux - a Ryanair non chargeable item unlike the clouds in the instant €3 cappucino


  1. Taking the bike out of the house looks like a lot of fun. glad you made it safely.

    That airline sounds like AirBC. When we lived in British Columbia we used to call it 'ScareBC'

    Beautiful pictures of the clouds. And the food even looks tasty too.

  2. I can not believe Ryan air don't charge you to take photos.....missed revenue opportunity if you ask me.

  3. Nikos:

    back to the food, that looks like hollandaise sauce on the non-veg meat protein.

    what, no photos of RyanAir food ?

    Stupid word verification said the letters didn't match, but then it posted both of them

    luv from sunny and cool BC

  6. I think I heard the safety briefing......

    In the event of a cabin depressurisation, an oxygen mask will drop down from above the seats. Place this on your face, using the elastic straps to hold securely in place. Place a £2 coin in the slot meter which will appear underneath the overhead locker and breathe normally. Oxygen supply will continue for 5 minutes and if additional oxygen is necessary, this is available at £1 for each additional 3 minutes. Euros are NOT accepted and change is not available from the Sales Ass.....sorry, Stewardess."

  7. Thank you for the Corinthians header or I would have thought that you were a Shakespeare aficionado (This, from someone who regularly got thrown out of school religious instruction classes so you see the problem).

    Thank you for the tip to avoid Ryanair on our next UK/Europe trip although it's nice to know that you have a bike parked up in Germany for my use ;-)

  8. That lass is gonna be fairly sweaty after she's trecked up the Rhine for a few more hours - ah, Romantic Germany. You still haven't in any way succeeded in turning me on to German cuisine, however.

  9. Now why is one beer glass smaller than the other?? I can't imagine Mrs Nikos going for the smaller one. :)

    Ronny is FREE!!! Yay!! Where did you go??

  10. Good to see Ronny being used for the purpose it was made, off-roading.
